HUMOR FROM THE CLASSROOM And other places I've hung out over the years By Arlo Janssen My wife and I took care of our lit- tle grandchildren a few days ago- Lucy, four-and-a-half, and Adam, three years old. While Ofelia was making lunch for all of us, the chil- dren asked me to play "Hide and Seek" with them-in the house. Before we started, Lucy asked, "Grandpa, what is 'seek?" When I told her that it means 'look for,' she said, "Let's play 'Hide and Go Look For;' we don't know 'seek'." Then they told me where they were going to hide. I went along with that a few times, and we had some fun with it. After that, I explained to the children that it might be more fun if they did not tell me where they were going to hide. When they did that, it was more enjoyable; they tried to really hide, and I showed surprise when I found them. I thought of that part of the game, when I was preparing the next day to speak on the Epistle of Paul to the Romans, chapter 8. In the same way that "Hide and Go Look For," is more enjoyable when we don't know what's behind the door, or in the closet, maybe the 'glory to be revealed in us' after this life will be a more wonder- ful surprise since we don't know what it will be until we see it. Anyway, isn't it wonderful to have been found by Jesus in this life. For sure, our Lord does know what seek means and He knows where and how to do it. Thinking of heaven reminds me of a time when I was ministering to an elderly woman in her last hours of life. I wanted to assure her that being with the Lord would be wonderful. "Just think," I said to her, "in heav- en we will be free of pain, suffering, or loneliness-all the things that bother us here." There was no answer, so I went on, holding her hand, "being with the Lord will be better than anything-bet- ter than your honeymoon was with Henry, who is now waiting for you.". With that, the dying woman opened her eyes to a squint and said, in a faint whisper, "Our honeymoon- that wasn't so good." After a brief pause, she added, "But I want to see my dear Henry again." Then, with a faint smile, she whis- pered almost inaudibly, "We'll both be with Jesus; that's....better than a honeymoon here; isn't it?" When I assured her that she was right, she closed her eyes for the last time and went to sleep.
